Weekly Makaton signs: Hello, Thank you and good
Sunshine, showers, snow - whatever next, but as long as we are dressed for anything, we can handle anything that comes our way. So much building work going on. Building repairing, demolishing, climbing up high and hiding down low. Setting traps in the Shed so the dinosaurs cannot get us. Using the crates like steps to climb up onto the shelf. So much team work, collaboration of ideas, trying out things that work and when they don't, what else can we try?
Despite the weather; picnics outside with the babies, as long as they are wrapped up warm. Very caring and gentle handling of the babies and understanding of needing to feed, change and cuddle the babies.
Playdough always of keen interest and good for fine motor skills. So many different things created. Biscuits, cakes, a diamond ring, strawberries, hedgehogs, wiggly worms, so much imagination, watching what others do and having a go themselves.
Yoga - Goldilocks and the 3 bears. Recalling the story, stretching, curling, running through the woods and the tall trees and at the end what moves can you remember from what we have just done.
Goldilocks and the three bears, the story out with the props, so the children can use these to tell the story themselves with out the need for the book and pictures.
